The sweet scent of lilacs on the breeze… apple blossoms everywhere… birds singing… hummingbirds buzzing… seeds sprouting up… new flowers in bloom each day… all these things truly make it feel like spring. See the first picture of the apple blossoms? The one with the pink blossoms before they opened? Don’t they remind you of little rosebuds? Every spring when I see them, that’s what they make me think of. We had a record amount of blossoms on our apple trees this year, that was a happy sight. And we breathed in the scent of the lilacs every time we passed them, savoring them to the fullest, before they faded away.
These pictures were taken maybe three weeks back? By the time I share pictures of what is in bloom in our garden, those things are always done blooming. Can you relate? Life is so busy- sorting and sharing pictures doesn’t happen as quickly as life moves, and everything in the garden changes so quickly it’s hard to keep up. But here they are- the lilacs and apple blossoms- some of my favorite spring sights around here.
